Allegedly Intoxicated Milton Man Charged with Pointing Loaded Gun at Stranger

BOSTON, May 16, 2017— A Milton man was arraigned today on charges he was drunk when he pointed a gun at a stranger in Allston, Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said.

ANDREW REGAN (D.O.B. 1/6/76) was arraigned today in Brighton Municipal Court on charges of carrying a firearm while intoxicated and assault with a dangerous weapon.  Assistant District Attorney Alyssa Tochka requested bail of $5,000.  Judge David Donnelly imposed $1,000 bail and ordered Regan to stay out of Allston and Brighton, stay away and have no contact with witnesses in the case, remain drug and alcohol free subject to random screening, and refrain from seeking reinstatement of his firearm license while the case is pending.

Prosecutors told the court that, shortly after 2:30 a.m. today, a man walking in the area of Linden Street in Allston approached two males, ages 21 and 22, as they sat talking inside a stopped vehicle.  When asked if he was okay, the man allegedly pulled out a firearm and pointed it at one of the men inside the vehicle.  The vehicle quickly drove off and the victim called 911.

Boston Police responded to the area and located a man in the area of Harvard and Brighton avenues, later identified as Regan, who matched the description provided by the victim and witness.  According to prosecutors, Regan was unsteady on his feet and slurred his words as officers spoke to him.  He was carrying a licensed Smith & Wesson 9 mm that was loaded with eight rounds of ammunition. 

The victim and witness both positively identified Regan as the man who pointed a gun at the victim, prosecutors said.

Regan was represented by Tom Amoroso.  He returns to court June 13.
